— Now you can recognize firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical services pros and other emergency personnel with a special Honoring First Responders Forever stamp.
"Our nation's first responders rush into life-threatening situations for the benefit of others," Chief Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell, Postal Inspection Service, said Thursday. "The Postal Service is pleased to honor their skill, dedication and unfailing bravery with this stamp."
Thursday, a ceremony was held at the Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center in Missoula, Montana, home to the nation's largest training center for firefighters who parachute into remote areas of national forests to combat wildfires.
Artist Brian Stauffer worked with art director and designer Antonio Alcalá and designer Ricky Altizer to create the stamp. Stauffer is a contributing artist to the New York Times, Time magazine, New Yorker magazine and other publications.
